You are looking at what Ponce de Leon was seeking, the secret to long life. Think you we exaggerate?
The tube of adhesive in the photo could be several years old, or more. The formula for this elixir is hidden in the Saran Wrap, under the screw on tube cover. The Saran Wrap creates an air tight seal. No air, no moisture, eternal softness. We have a tube of Permatex high temp gasket material that dates to the launching of Wind Horse, in 2005.
Try it, you will be amazed.
